Scholarship Deadlines  

 

Applications are now available for the SRJC Teaching Fellows Program. This program pairs a contract Faculty Mentor with an SRJC Teaching Fellows scholarship recipient. These merit-based scholarship awards are designed for students who wish to explore teaching and education-related careers in a hands-on mentorship program. The Teaching Fellows Program is intended to help students explore their interest in teaching and scholarly careers (Pre-K through higher education) with Faculty Mentors at SRJC.
 
One of the most rewarding aspects of this program is the educational and practical experience Teaching Fellows receive by interacting with a faculty member at SRJC. These interactions add to the depth and breadth of the Teaching Fellows' learning experience, providing enhanced exposure to a profession in education.  

Deadline to apply is November 8, 2012.
